Visual admin not started


I have installed ECC6.0 ABAP+JAVA (Central system) on AIX 5.3 with Oracle environment on host PRDCI.

As a part of testing on backup server I had moved all the file systems on to other node called PRDDB and changed all the startup scripts. The DB and the ABAP instances are running fine. When I try to execute Visual admin from /usr/sap/<SID>/DVEBMGS00/j2ee/admin and select the

default connection, I am getting the following message

"Unable to lookup connection default

Unable to lookup connection parameters from PRDCI:8101"

Still the default connection is looking on PRDCI.

Is there any way where i can change the properties of default connection?

Kindly advice.

    Hi Siva,

    If default connection not working, maybe you can add new login entry, as alternative.

    The default connection of Visual Administrator uses the message server

    HTTP port to get the ports and hosts of the available dispatchers in the

    cluster. The HTTP port of the message server is written in the adminCFG

    .properties file in the /admin/cfg directory of the J2EE installation.

    If during the installation the port of the J2EE message server has

    changed, as result the default connection wont work.

    You may check what's the port of the message server in the Config Tool

    -> Instance_ID -> Message Server & Bootstrap -> Message Server Port.

    To repair the default connection of Visual Administrator you may modify

    the file so that the key connection.0.Port has the


    connection.0.Port="message server port"

    Hope this helps.



    p/s: reward points if helpful.

    As said by Lim, you should not only change the Port , You should also change the Hostname if your J2EE engine is not running on PRDCI.

    HI Caritor,

    For openting Visual Admin, just follow below steps:

    1. Go to <Driver>:\usr\sap\<SID>\<Instance num>\j2ee\admin --> click on go.bat

    ex: C:\usr\sap\X67\JC01\j2ee\admin --> go.bat

    2. you will get logon dialog box; Click on "New" button.

    3. Enter "Display Name" and Choose "Direct Connection to Dispatcher Node" then sya "Next".

    4. Give UserName, Host and Port number.

    5. Save

    6. Click on "Connect" button then enter Password of User.


    How to find the Port number.

    You can find you engin Port number in folder structure.

    <driver>:\usr\sap\<Instance ID>\ JC<Instance Num>\

    Please find below information

    ex: C:\usr\sap\X67\JC01\j2ee\cluster

    As per above example C:\usr\sap\X67\JC01 -->( <driver>:\usr\sap\<Instance ID>\ JC<Instance Num>\ )

    Instance number is : 01

    Port number = 50000 + 100 * Instance number + Port Index

    Port Num = 50000 + 100 * 01 + 04 = 50104

    Now you can find you port number according to above steps:

    In Visual Admin we are using P4 Port. this port index is 04;

    Plz check URL.

    Please give points; if it is realy helpfull.

    Hello Siva.

    I executed the procedure the System Copy for Netweaver 2004s SR1 ABAP+ JAVA, with the procedure: Oracle-Specific Procedure (Backup/Restore) for refresh my System Test QAS (BIQ) of BI 7.0, with the production System PRD BIP.

    Could able to connect & use the ABAP System successfully.

    But the Java System give the error: J2EE status info unavailable.

    I tried to open the Visual Administrator but give me error: " UNABLE TO LOOK CONNECTION DEFAULT. HTTP://SAPQABI01:8100:msgserver/text/logon returned empty list of connection parameters ".

    In the case of you, where you had the same problem, it could obtain some solution for this case ????
